ST. LOUIS — One of the best places to get hot chocolate in the U.S. is right here in St. Louis.
USA Today named Clementine’s among the top 10 places to get hot chocolate in the U.S. this year.
Not only is it one of the best, but it is also offering an exclusive hot chocolate. The ‘gold leaf hot chocolate’ is available for $49. It’s made with Askinosie sipping chocolate morsels. You can a scoop of ice cream on the side.
If you just want some good old-fashioned hot chocolate with whipped cream, it’s $7.95.
‘Clementine's Creamery may be an ice cream parlor, but this St. Louis small-batch scoop shop is debuting a new treat this winter: an affogato with European sipping chocolate topped with a gold leaf homemade marshmallow.
For the ultimate hot chocolate, they blend Askinosie sipping chocolate morsels for a warming beverage topped with a scoop of Clementine's Midnight Pleasures chocolate ice cream.’
This is the first time Clementine’s has offered the $49 hot chocolate. Owner Tamara Keefe said she wanted to try something festive and new for the holiday season. The marshmallows are made in-house.
The hot chocolate will be available at all three locations all winter long.
